Cascade Chapter of IPC Designers Council Meets Dec. 7


Reading time ( words)

The Cascade Chapter of the Designers Council's next Lunch and Learn meeting will take place December 7 at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology-Kirkland Campus (LWIT).

This meeting we will cover flex fabrication, materials, and techniques as well as some do's and don'ts. Jerome Larez, an application engineer with MicroConnex, will be the guest speaker for this event.

With the ever-increasing emphasis on IoT (Internet Of Things), the demand for flex circuits and designs is increasing rapidly. This will be an opportunity to get helpful insights into flex fabrication and learn how to avoid some common errors made by flex designers.

Following the meeting, there will be Altium User Group meeting for anyone who is interested. Stop by and become part of the conversation as Product Marketing Engineer David Haboud meets with local users and other industry advocates to discuss some of the toughest “how to” and “why” questions surrounding Altium Designer and the PCB design industry.

Presentation: Flex Printed Circuit Fabrication 

Speaker Jerome Larez will focus on flex printed circuit (FPC) fabrication. He will be discussing common materials used in FPC fabrication, including stiffeners and coverlays. Jerome will outline FPC fabrication techniques, how to better communicate your design requirements to fabricators, and some of the do’s and don’ts for FPC design.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Friday, December 7 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational Lunch and Learn event. The cost is $20 to cover the cost of lunch.
